PARBAT: A team from the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority, Department of Mines and Geology, has recommended the prompt relocation of six houses at Kuwapani of Jaljala rural municipality-5 in Parbat.

The team visited the area on September 7 and assessed it as highly vulnerable to disasters and thus not suitable for human habitation, according to Parbat’s Chief District Officer, Prem Acharya.

A significant landslide at Kuwapani had turned around 85 ropani of arable land into arid land. Jaljala rural municipality vice chair Deepak Acharya said the landslide due to monsoon rains since late June has posed a grave threat to particularly six houses.

The affected families sought refuge in a local community building and relatives’ houses and with the rains subsided, they got back to their houses.
